We who live here in NYC spend an awful lot of time standing around in lines waiting for things. I’ll admit, at times I am one of those fools too, but as I am getting older (and more wiser) I have to say that I just don’t have the patience for it anymore. I mean, if it’s for something extremely worthwhile such as free concert tickets or to a special event that just might entice me. Otherwise, don’t expect me to waste hours of my precious time on a slow moving line with a bunch of other noobs for anything. We are a fast paced city here. We act and move quickly. We hustle. Why anyone would lose precious sleep or time to wait for certain things on long ass lines just goes to show the extent some will go through. Call it nutty, call it absurd, just don’t call it logical. Some of these people are totally Cray Cray!
The movies are one. Why do people here in NYC feel the need to wait on mega long lines just to go see a popular movie on opening night? That is the worst time to go. Plus, the theater is packed with annoying people who won’t shut up, have their phones on during the movie, obnoxious little kids, crying babies, and there is usually the freakishly tall person who just happens to take the seat right in front of you. Thanks for blocking my view Gigantaur! Buy your tickets on-line or in advance and wait a few days. Even better, just wait a few weeks and it will be on DVD!

Now, I know most people who live in Manhattan or Brooklyn travel up past midtown for anything. Oh, God forbid, they actually get on a subway and venture up past 14th street. Well, I’ll tell you this – not everything good is on the LES, Brooklyn, and Queens. That is all fine and dandy – I’ll keep great places like Milk Burger to myself!
Shake Shack be damned there is a new playa playa up in El Barrio/East Harlem NYC looking to lay the smack down on ya!
Not too long ago I had some time to kill so I decided to take a walk. As I was entering a barren stretch of land along 2nd ave where there are just a few bodegas and stores I saw this gleaming structure in white shining like a beacon calling me home. It was as if I was in a dream and Milk Burger was this bastion of burger meat that kept calling my name. Hunger pangs were in effect so lunch meat baby here I come! Continue reading Burgerlicious! Milk Burger in East Harlem NYC.
One of the few eating establishments in the NYC area that can be truly considered a “panty dropper”. Seriously, if you want to score some serious “smush time” points make sure you take your date to Traif to wine and dine her or him. After an amazing meal here if you can’t “get some” then you would have a hard time scoring in a whorehouse with a fist full of hundreds.
It has been a while since we dined at this wonderful restaurant but I just realized I never reviewed it, so here we are reminiscing over a terrific meal that was truly orgasmic!
What I remember most is, um, let me think…….EVERYTHING!!! Continue reading Traif – a true Panty Dropper meal in Brooklyn, NYC!
Overall, New Yorkers can be a most cynical and demanding bunch. We seem to know it all, and feel that we must have an opinion on everything. Maybe even over-privileged to a point. This can be very true especially when it comes to our Jewish deli’s. We compare each and every one to each other – Katz, Carnegie, Ben’s, Stage, Artie’s, etc. Sometimes it is fair to compare, and sometimes it’s like trying to decipher the meaning of life. I decided recently to walk in here with an open mind and high spirits to just enjoy a good deli meal without comparing it to the others I have experienced.
This new location of 2nd Ave Deli is actually located on 1st Ave where an old restaurant used to sit by 75th street. It’s definitely an upgrade to the neighborhood and a nice addition. The layout has the same kind of look and feel as it’s Murray Hill location with the awkward entrance way and tight seating setup. You almost have to be like a Cirque Du Soleil contortionist to squeeze into a table without disturbing the other diners around you. Still, these are all minor nuances that don’t mean all that much to me when going to a place to sit down and feast on a guilty pleasure meal. Continue reading Shalom! 2nd Ave Deli on the Upper East Side NYC!
